could you disconnect the negative cable...wait five seconds then put it back? Does this do anything?...sources tell us your headlight switch is bad...can this be true?

sounds like the car doesnt like the key your using. It has either lost the programming for the key for some reason or your using the wrong key. When it comes to issues with the security systems the dealer is best suited to work on these issues

Only remote we have, key will not turn in ignition now so I can not take to dealer or any repair place

tow trucks tow vehicles to any destination you prefer.

you could try taking the cable off as judge said its a long shot but anything is worth a try to wave off the tow truck.

I'm going to look at your fusebox to see if there is a fuse we can pull to avoid this whole mess~

too small....must post here, this viewer is superior~

fuse number three is your "keyless entry" fuse, don't know if this would help ot pull this one?~
